A little bit of history

Hello adventurers!

Talking about the history of canyoning in Spain is a little bit a hard task, since there is almost no literature to find about this subject. 

Canyoning is born with the force showing the unknown man exploration, survival and knowledge of places. There´s no doubt that the first explorers who venture into canyons, gorges and ravines has been primitive man since today you can see in many of the can. Therefore, those who knows these places the best are always the natives of the area themselves. Either for there own interests (water, fishing, bath)... or seeking knowledge in the environment, ther¡y were always applying a large doses of adventure. 

The history of Spain about ravines, gorges and canyons goes hand in hand with the famous explorers of our neighboring country. These great adventurers moved there knowledge about the environment, exploring the unknown and the interest to discover inaccessible places. A good example of one of those explorers is Lucient Briet (1870-1921), adventurer and writer. His forays in the Pyrenees left us great discoveries. 

But the rise of this activity begins to form from the 60s-70s and is taking it´s biggest blast in the 80s with the binding with the Spanish Federation of Speleology And the Spanish Federation of mountains. These Spanish Federations programmed different activities to explore new places for all kinds of groups, clubs and associations.
